Oil changes every 5,000 miles.
FYI: Transmission is sealed, no dipstick, no need to check fluid.
I had a 2005 & had 175,000 miles when I traded it. Only issues were factory battery at 5 years, universal joint replaced at 120,000 miles, wheel bearing replaced @ 165,000 miles.
I just did normal maint: spark plugs @ 50,000 miles, Oil changes @ 5,000 miles(easy to do yourself, oil filter is on top of engine), Toyota pink engine coolant (only use this, not the cheap store brands) @ 100,000 miles, Brakes when needed, periodically check the air filter
;I have the K&N & wash & re-oil(with the kit) it every 20,000 - 25000 miles. Transmission service around 120,000 miles, Rear differental service around 100,000 miles.
I ran synthetic oil from 80,000 miles going forward. Mostly because I didn't know much about synthetic till then. You can always find deals at the autoparts store for synthetic oils. Autozone
has a $10 off coupon
till Sept 24th. Usually autoparts synthetic deals are around $25-$30 with oil filter. The dealer charges from $45-$60 for synthetic.
